“I got this from our family friend Ray. He calls it Mexican shrimp cocktail. It is different but delicious. This gets served in cups with spoons You can modify this: add jalapenos if you like, less hot sauce, less get the idea. Play to the crowd that you will be feeding. My kids like me to make it and we keep it in the fridge for 3 or 4 days and munch on it for lunch or snacks until it is gone. Try it before you decide you don't like it, you might be pleasantly surprised!! **Cooking time is cooling time to allow the flavors to marry.”
